  • HOPPY TUMMY BITTERS

    Hoppy Tummy Bitters features a floral hops flavor with cinnamon and birch accents. A savory element is added by the fact that it is infused in apple cider vinegar. Bitters are used to help balance the digestive system.

    Description
    Most traditional bitters contain herbs that encourage contractions, making them unsafe for pregnant women. By contrast, we are proud to say this formula is uniquely pregnancy safe. You will enjoy it whether or not you are pregnant, but we’re excited to offer an option for good digestion if you are.

    What Are Bitters?
    Bitters can help you balance your digestive system+. Traditionally, you would use them to increase the absorption of nutrients during digestion, but you can also use them to curb your sweet tooth. The bitter flavor encourages your gall bladder, liver, and stomach to produce appropriate levels of digestive juices. Sadly, the American diet is severely lacking in the bitter taste that your body needs to maintain a properly toned digestive system. This leads to a lack of assimilation, acid indigestion, reflux, constipation, and much more.

    How to Use
    Put 15 drops of Hoppy Tummy Bitters on the top of your tongue 15 minutes before each meal.

    Ingredients:
    Apple cider vinegar*, hops (Humulus lupulus)*, dandelion (Taraxacum officinale)*, birch (Betula spp.)W, gentian (Gentiana lutea)*, orange peel (Citrus sinensis)*, and cinnamon (Cinnamomum spp.)*. 2 ounces. [*Organic, W Wildcrafted]

  • HOUSING RECLAIMED

    Housing is a fundamental human right. For most of human history, our homes were built by hand from whatever local materials were available. However, since the Industrial Revolution, most housing has become little more than quickly constructed, mass-produced, uniform boxes. At the same time, the invention and standardization of the 30-year mortgage and our ever-increasing reliance on credit has come to mean that most of us never own our homes outright.

    Housing Reclaimed is a call to arms for nonconventional home builders. It examines how technological advances, design evolution and resourceful, out-of-the-box thinking about materials and efficiency can help us meet the challenge of building affordable, environmentally friendly, beautiful and unique homes. Focusing on the use of salvaged and reclaimed materials, this inspirational volume is packed with case studies of innovative projects including:

    • Phoenix Commotion — working together toward low-income home ownership through sweat equity and 100% recycled materials
    • HabeRae — revitalizing neighborhoods by creating urban infill using modern technology and sustainable and reclaimed materials
    • Builders of Hope — rescuing and rehabilitating whole houses slated for demolition

    These projects and others like them demonstrate that building one's own home does not have to be an unattainable dream. This beautifully illustrated guide is a must read for anyone interested in creating quality zero- or low-debt housing, reducing landfill waste and creating stronger communities.

    Jessica Kellner is editor-in-chief of Mother Earth Living magazine (www.motherearthliving.com) and a passionate advocate of using architectural salvage to create aesthetically beautiful, low-cost housing.
